Excellent replies,

So a couple of questions about preferences for the mascot:

1. Does the mascot need to have a name that starts with R? Is that usually the way it works?

So far the possibilities put forward are: Ray, Ram, Inch Worm, Rhinoceros

2. Should the depiction of the mascot be more "literal" like the O'Reilly Ram, or cartoonish like the Linux and LaTeX mascots? Or could there be multiple representations?
